Last time when I placed an order for some BGS5 modules, I received an information from my reseller, that they have only release 2 of module. Is BGS5 release 2 compalible with release 1 according to electrical or software specification? Will software written with release 1 libraries run on release 2?
Rel2 modules have the flash memory changed. That's why it is not possible to update the rel1 module's firmware to rel2 version.
Generally we also recommend (especially when the main firmware release is changed) to recompile the MIDlets with new libraries. Although the old compilation may work it's better to use the new one as there were also some changes in Java libs.
As for the hardware you can use rel2 in place of rel1.
